Given how the issue unfolded I'd be shocked if Kyle isn't back as White Lantern before Venditti wraps up his run.

I liked this issue and particularly what they did with Kyle . . . and no, I'm not saying that to troll Ion. I'm not even a real Kyle fan, but I got a nostalgic twinge for him in the black and white.

What they need to do is change Green Lanterns to Green Lantern and have Kyle be the star, kill off Baz and have Jessica train with Hal, Guy and John on Hal & GLC

So was Kyle frying Walker's mind supposed to revive the dead Blue Lanterns or something?

Still wish Kyle had his classic symbol too :/

I really liked this issue. It was inevitable that Kyle would be a Greenie sooner or later, and a brief history of both Hal's respect and Ganthet's admiration for Kyle was a perfect way to do it.

EVS had Kyle in his old NIN shirt too... there was a lot to like about the issue but it didn't feel like anything really happened.

I bet they didn't go with Kyle's classic symbol just so he could have the same floating badge in front of his chest like everybody else. JUST STOP WITH THE DAMN FLOATIES!

Yeah, it would have been nice if they let us know what exactly he was attempting before he failed. Your guess seems likely from the clues we had, but it just seems odd that they didn't even tell us (or KYLE even!) exactly what they were trying to do before they started in with it, then fell short.

They way I took it was that Kyle was trying to revive the blues, but an unknown outside force (Oz?) interfered, causing the splintering of the white light.

wonder what this means for the White Lantern Corp that Kyle made at the end of his last GL comic? (NOT THE ONE WITH THE OMEGA MEN )

They really should change the symbol on Kyle's chest to his original. If you are going to do this, DO this.

It's the damn floating symbols' fault. I just KNOW it.

They will likely never be mentioned again. Green Lantern comics work like that quite often. I think sometimes the writers and editors pretend that no one is reading this stuff. Or that the people reading it regularly suffer from amnesia. Or maybe just that no one is paying any attention to it. Or maybe that no one cares about the stories. What a thing to think of your readers. Or maybe it's that the writers and editors aren't actually reading the Green Lantern stories themselves. I dunno'. But that type of thing happens often enough to where I really have to wonder. The most plausible reasoning is that they just ignore whatever story point they want to whenever they want to, even if it makes the stories not make sense, or it's glaring that something is not being addressed.

One site I can across when I was looking for a review thought that they were trying to revive the Guardians

maybe that's why the other Guardians haven't come back

I thought that at first, too, with the references to the last time Kyle did that. But then it SEEMED more likely, given Ganthet and Sayd's role in creating the Blues, and Walker's involvement, that it was the Blue Lanterns, but it really would have been nice if Ganthet had clarified what they were attempting. It's not like it would have required unjustified exposition...I don't think even KYLE knew exactly what they were doing, and they were using HIM to do it! We could have found out the same way HE did. This sort of unexplained exploitation of Kyle's abilities seems more like the kind of thing Ganthet would have criticized other Guardians for in the past.

It was the Blue Lanterns. It was said in the next issue or two; something like "after we failed to revive the blue lantern corps."
